Are you almost ready for all the ghouls, ghosts and goblins that show up on your doorstep this time of year? It's almost time!
I was gonna try to get a better photo of this....but I think it looks a little eerie with the lighting this way......mwaaaahhh ha haaa!!!!!! I have just about worn out my Artful Inkables "Halloween Hauntings" stamp set. But I realized I had not used this punky-black-kitty-propped-up-on-skeleton-heads stamp yet......so here you go!
CTMH's textured cardstock actually has a lighter shade on the reverse, so I used one black sheet to make this card - the gray cardstock is the backside. I ran a piece of it (black side up) through my Cuttlebug with this cute Halloween folder (I think I got it on sale last year for $1.99). I used my sanding block to sand the heck out of it, which really brings out the images!
I cut a spiky gray mat, just 'cause I thought it would look spooky, and added a little bat. Then the fun part.....I tried to shape the sentiment to look like the top of a tombstone. I bought ONE....just ONE....bottle of Smooch....you know, the stuff that looks like a nail polish bottle, but comes out lookin' like CTMH's Pearl Paint. The bottle I purchased was "Cherry Chocolate" (hel-LO!!) It was just what I needed!
Sorta looks like dripping blood, doesn't it? MWAHHH-HA-HAAAAA!!!!
Good grief. I need to get a grip ;-)
